A healthy chocolate spread? How is it possible? If we only use healthy ingredients to make our spread from scratch, it will turn out super healthy. Not using any oils, processed sugars, dairy is a good plan for a healthy recipe.

How about the sweetness

A chocolate spread has to be sweet, right? Yes, but there is a workaround for this particular recipe, we are gonna use the healthiest sweetener there is, dates. Dates might not work in every single recipe as a sugar replacement, but here, the soft medjool dates are perfekt. Date are not only sweet, they also add a caramelly flavor to the spread.

Is cacao unhealthy?

There are many opinions on the health benefits and dangers of cacao out there. If you don’t wanna use cacao, use carob instead.

Chocolate Milk

Sure, you can by vegan milks at a store, but it’s so easy to make your own raw vegan milk at home. Plan-based milks are not only tastier and healthier than cow’s milk, they are also so versatile and fun to make.
We used to love chocolate milk. The taste, the sweetness, the flavor of cocoa. Not the unhealthy ingredients of it or the animal-cruelty caused by the milk production for sure. So here is an amazing hemp-based alternative. It is healthier and even more delicious. There are so many more good non-dairy vegan substitutes for milk we will share with you this year!

Date, Agave, Honey? What is healthier

Dates are a healthier sugar alternative. It is better than agave or honey. Not that we are considering honey as a possible food, it’s a product bees invested hard labor in to have food for themselves and who are we to steel it, right?! Back to the date, dates are the best.
